the burden on the women. we went out one time to mississippi. we were there, and then we went out to birmingham, alabama, and we heard the same story time and again. a woman being abused. a neighbor or woman calls up, and guess who goes to jail. the person who called them because they say that woman does not have papers. what does law enforcement do? that is why you have to separate law enforcement from immigration policy. the police are there to protect the people. they have to protect the women and the families.[applause] it is fine and dandy to talk about safety, but we have to understand just how safety really has a corrosive effect. the police, their cars are important to them to protect them. their guns are important to them. their communication, their training is important, but the most important tool, instrument that the police have is the people and the cooperation of the people. when you pass immigration law to criminalize all emigrants and-- immigrants and make them fear the police, you make all of us less safe and you make us all a nation in which we perpetrate injustice
